Individual employers and organisations should make arrangements for retraining to be available, but the frequency of this refresher training will depend on the individual. For guidance, skills should be refreshed at least once a year, but preferably more often. (UK – Resus Council 2016).

BENEFITS OF AED TRAINING
Purchasing a defibrillator is a huge step into keeping those around you safe whether it be in a local community or in the workplace. Being trained in using automated external defibrillators will give you the skills and confidence to help save someone’s life in an emergency situation.
Although AEDs are straightforward to use, it is highly recommended that if you have an AED present,members of your organisation are trained in its usage. When someone is having a cardiac arrest, every second counts and defibrillators are proven to be massively beneficial, drastically improving survival chances in an emergency situation. If the AED is applied fast and efficiently, there is a higher chance of the patient surviving.
